Instructor

Meghan Droste

When must you accommodate an employee who is pregnant? Can you request medical documentation if a pregnant employee asks for an accommodation? What if an employee can’t do the critical elements of her job because she is pregnant? What are the options for an employee who hasn’t worked long enough to be eligible for FMLA?

Federal law protects employees from pregnancy-based discrimination and harassment at work, and it allows that employees have a legal right to work adjustments to allow them to do their job without jeopardizing their health. However, these protections come at the intersection of three different laws — the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.

This 90-minute webinar, hosted by FELTG instructor and attorney at law Meghan Droste, will explain the protections afforded pregnant employees under all three laws, as well as explain:

  • When you have an obligation to accommodate pregnant employees.
  • What medical documentation you are permitted to ask for when evaluating a request for accommodations.
  • How to avoid discriminating against pregnant job applicants.
  • What to do when supervisors try to “protect” pregnant employees from difficult work.

Get up to speed on this challenging area of law. Register today.

Barbara Haga

Course Description

If you want to effectively address poor performance and create an agency that capably holds its employees accountable, there is one place where you need to start. That’s your agency’s performance appraisal system. In order to hold employees accountable, agencies need to set expectations on what the job requires, and how employees will be rated.

Over the course of this 90-minute webinar, instructor Barbara Haga will explain your options for designing an appraisal system that meets the legal and regulatory requirements while helping foster accountability. She’ll explain the types of elements that can be used, as well as summary and element rating choices.

Attend this webinar and you’ll learn how to:

  • Build accountability into your performance systems
  • Minimize the burden on supervisors in taking action on performance below the Fully Successful level
  • Train managers, reviewers, and employees to ensure successful implementation

It’s time you took that first step toward holding employees accountable. Join Ms. Haga and find out how to create and implement a performance appraisal plan and reap the accountability rewards. Register today.
